On Saturday, Octavia Butler’s birthday, this collection will no longer be available. So if you feel like getting a book while also supporting diversity in sf/f, donate to the Carl Brandon Society by buying Bloodchildren. It’s 8.01 dollars.
The money goes towards supporting writers of colour (like me and everyone in the book!), and helping them attend the Clarion and Clarion West workshops through the Octavia E. Butler Scholarship Award (as I and my fellow Bloodchildren writers were honoured). That is an opportunity that is guaranteed to change the life of a writer, and rest assured, you will have their immense gratitude, as anyone and everyone who’s donated in the past has ours.
So once again, thank you. And may racist, misogynist, bigoted fools stop fucking with sf/f, art in general, and the world, forever.
